Hi All
I'm at a loss. Am trying to work out how I can fit a autotuneing aerial to a new Nissan Navara ST-X. The isn't enough room between the bul bar and bonnet and because of the drop down tail gate there is no where on the back.
Does anyone have any suggetions
Cheers

Off to one side of the tailgate would be my suggestion. Ocoolone (member on here) has a current model Hilux with canopy and he has a HF auto tune on one side and a sat phone antenna on the other. I think he has a bracket attached to the top of the tub, sandwiched under the canopy.

Gday,
I moved by bullbar forward a couple of inches.
Do you have a wheel carrier on the back?

Thanks. Moving the Bullbar might be my best option. Unfortunately don't have a spare wheel carrier on back

If you do move your bull bar forward, try to incorperate your aerial bracket into your bull bar mounts so its actualy fixed to a metal bracket (bolted to your chassis) rather than tothe bull barImage Could Not Be FoundImage Could Not Be Found .

Get a couple of tabs welded to the top pipe of the bar and mount it there. As far as possible to the LHS.

Daz,

Not too sure about the rules in NSW, but here in Vic, it is now illegal to fit Autotunes to the bullbar or anywhere on the front...back mounting is the only option.

I have also seen them mounted in the tray (no good if you have a canopy, though). Just some thoughts, though not helpful, I know.

Cheers,

Mark

Nearly all Autotunes are mounted on the bullbar here in QLD.

Could be interesting travelling through Vic in QLD registered car with autotune on the bullbar?
